I feel you on the social anxiety. My first shower was so awkward because there were people there I am not that close to. Uncomfortable!! But still appreciated. It was a surprise shower, so I had no idea it would be so big.

The 2nd shower was much less awkward because it was more casual and only my closest friends and our parents. Very intimate.
